What a great place to stay! We stayed in the balcony room and had a wonderful time on our first visit to Lanesboro. Peter and Vicki are awesome hosts. They make you feel like you are old friends staying for a visit. Their recommendations of what to do/see/eat were perfect! The breakfasts were outstanding and they easily accommodated our dietary...

We very much enjoyed our stay! A great weekend and Peter and Vicki are great hosts. Breakfast was fantastic! Really liked Lanesboro. Peter and Vicki were also helpful in telling us what was happening in the area so we could plan our day. We will be back.

I relax just thinking of our delightful Anniversary stay at The Scandinavian Inn in Lanesboro. The gorgeous scenery on our drive down from the Twin Cities and the beauty of the area enhanced our experience. If you like to bike or hike, this is the place to go! And we also enjoyed the local eating spots (we enjoyed eating at... More

Peter and Vicki made our stay very nice with the exceptional food and their house that has a lot of personality. We've been there before and this time we tried out their new room, "The Loft." Loved it!

The owners, Peter & Vickie, added to our delightful 2 day bike trip to Lanesboro. Their B & B is in a quiet residential area and has many common indoor and outdoor spaces to relax in and enjoy. There's even a piano to play, music to listen to, beautiful décor to admire, and books and magazines to read should any... More

To get a very accurate introduction to the Scandinavian Inn & its innkeepers, go to their website for information, photos & a video. We found the Inn & the innkeepers, Peter & Vicki Torkelson, to be exactly as presented. Their video is highly recommended. We enjoyed reading about the Inn, especially the “For Men Only” entry. We stayed at the... More

My husband and I have been to Lanesboro several times, and have stayed at local B&B's. We were in town for a wedding, and stayed one night over the weekend. The hosts were lovely and flexible as we had to quickly drop our things off before heading to the wedding; they met us when we returned later in the evening.... More

We were treated so well, by owners Peter and Vicki. Delicious breakfasts, towels by the door when we came back wet. :) It is a beautiful home and we enjoyed conversations with them and the other guests, but also had our privacy. Relaxing vacation, as we enjoyed the theater and many restaurants as recommended by our wonderful hosts! Also loved... More

We found Scandinavian Inn via Trip Advisor. The Inn is everything as described on their webpage and more! The Inn was lovely and well kept. The bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding with all seasonal fresh foods. The host was extremely helpful in pointing out activities and restaurants in Lanesboro. This will be our B&B of choice... More

The Scandinavian Inn was the perfect place to meet up with old friends and unwind for my husband and me. We felt as if were going back in time as we drove down the winding road into the river valley which nestles the Inn. The Inn itself is exquisitely decorated with furniture and art of another era when life moved... More
